Most people spend much longer working on client projects than they realize. Chime offers a way for its users to estimate how long it takes them to complete certain tasks. Based on what they discover, users can send the results to their clients as a standard part of the invoicing process.
How much are your professional services really worth? If you used Chime, you’d already know — and you’d have the facts to back up your assertion. Start a new timer when you begin working on a client project, making sure to set your entries as billable or unbillable depending on what you’re working on. Click the “pause” button if you need to take a break mid-project, or use Chime as a simple tool for clocking in each day. Once you’ve clocked in, you can mark your operations as “settled” or “unsettled.” Chime really comes alive once you’ve gathered all your necessary data. The web-application’s reporting tools help to evaluate everything you (and the rest of your team) have achieved using advanced filters, graphs, charts, and a complete history of events.
When you use Chime, you can monitor the progress of your projects, see which specific tasks took the most time to complete, review efficiencies with your staff, and see how much you actually earned from each project your company agreed to take on.
